Insights for Practice


recorded classes video & audio

The Sadhana Pada chapter of the Yoga Sūtra is the most pragmatic and exoteric chapter on Yoga. We will explore the klesha, the laws of karma, Yama and Niyama, along with the Sūtra on Asana and Pranayama. You will receive recordings of the classes along with a study sheet and points of self-inquiry and a soundbite to practice chanting. There are 55 Sūtra and 55 classes.


Invokes a blessing for the commencement of an adventure of personal transformation. For most practice is a physical discipline that accesses the more obvious (sthula) cellular and intellectual levels. I want to congratulate those of you who are ready to take the Quantum (anu) leap to commit to Sūtra study to reveal and access subtle (sukshma) layers of svarupa - your essential Self, spirit and soul. What is so wonderful about the Sutra is that you can chant them anywhere, anytime, anyhow - even when you are multi-tasking.


Now is the time to decide if you will investment in your personal growth. Will you open your heart and mind in contemplation of the Yoga Sutra? Many have piecemeal understanding of the Sutra, when you take on the adventure of learning the whole chapter  you appreciate the whole mandala as a portal to open to new worlds and perspectives.



Along with weekly zoom meetings you will have special access to a google drive folder with study materials, the weekly video along with points of self-inquiry which I call Divyadṛṣṭi. You will also receive a soundbite to support you in chanting. I invite you to explore these points of reflection as an opportunity to unfold and discover parts of yourself. Each live class has time for breakout room discussion, as well as time for group reflection.

Join a community of like-minded practitioners to discuss and expand perspectives.



For those of you who are wholehearted in your commitment to see this project through, prepay for the entire course for a discounted rate of $900 for savings of $235. Enrollment in the year-long course includes a 20 minute private meeting with Bhavani and a copy of her book The Yogi's Roadmap.
